The computer science curriculum is designed to not only provide a solid background in fundamentals, but also to continuously respond to rapid changes in the field of computing by equipping our students with modern tools, approaches, and cutting-edge concepts and technologies. Coursework in computer science spans three core areas of computing, including theory, software development, and systems. Beginning computer science courses are open to non-majors and satisfy the mathematical and symbolic reasoning component of the general education requirements. All computer science majors must complete a senior seminar capstone experience, and the discipline prides itself on the high quality of students' papers and presentations in this course. The program also includes mathematics or statistics in the required coursework.
Computer science majors develop software, explore hardware systems, and apply theoretical concepts. Reflecting the collaborative nature of today's world, team work is heavily integrated into computer science coursework. Students are encouraged to use and supplement their formal education through research opportunities, internship experiences, programming and robotics competitions, and student and professional organizations. Many students take advantage of the opportunity to collaborate with computer science faculty on research projects, presenting the results at international, national, and regional conferences, as well as at UMM's Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Study in computer science is required for management and math majors at UMM, as well as for students pursuing a variety of pre-engineering programs. Many UMM computer science majors enter the job market upon graduation, primarily in the computing industry. Others pursue postgraduate work toward a masters or doctoral degree in computing, business, library science, or a variety of other fields.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
